Our Story

Sugar Gamers specializes in tech advocacy and inclusivity in gaming, geek and tech spaces.

 

Founded as a community for female gamers, Sugar Gamers has evolved into a diverse group of trendsetters and aficionados within the worlds of technology, gaming, and the arts. Sugar Gamers was founded in 2009 when Keisha Howard went on a quest to find other women with geeky interests and ideas similar to her own. After developing a community for gals like her, Keisha found that Sugar Gamers appealed to underrepresented geeks and gamers from all walks of life. Though our community isn’t one of hardcore pro-gamers, we have been recognized by prestigious companies such as Twin Galaxies, HTC, and more, and have received awards for our innovations and positive contributions to the gaming and technology communities. The approach that Sugar Gamers takes to this industry sets us worlds apart from our peers. More importantly, we value real-life interactions just as much as our online community. We create content and experiences that make the fun and fast-paced world of geek culture come alive through our group of remarkable and unique individuals.

  • Aside from our @jennicole1 being a COO angel sent from the digital Gods 🙇🏾‍♀️ What you see her wearing is a Nylon Motion Capture Suit provided by @livecgi! #swipe CGI equipment captures realistic movements + human like motion in real time, while being live streamed. When in action this gear would allow (for example) @msichicago to have a digital avatar of Jenn at their expense, without her needing to be physically present 🤯 —- If you haven’t done so already stay up to date with the future in #AR with our partners over at @livecgi 👌🏾 #sugargamers #technews #techupdates #AR #VR .
